checkbox vs text box

I posted this in an HTML forum, but I think it's going to take some
scripting to act as I want to act.

I have a form with multiple records.
My intention is to have the user click a checkbox for each product he wants.
Then submit the form placing multiple items in his cart.
If I use a text box like the following and enter a 1 for each product,
submit, no problem.
The user gets the products he wants.
<input name="qty" type="text" value="0">

However, if I use the following checkbox code, and assuming the user checks
4 products half way down the page, he will get the first 4 products in the
recordset. If he clicks 1 checkbox, he will always get the first product,
not the product he chose.
<input name="qty" type="checkbox" value="1">

What I have found is when I submit the form to a blank test page using
checkoxes or text boxes, there's a considerable difference. The text boxes
deliver a comma delimination for each occurance. The checkboxes only offer
comma delimination for each checkbox that is selected. At this point, I'm
assuming that's the difference between the two and it cannot be changed
through HTML.

How can I make the checkboxes act as text boxes?

thanks

Hi Shank

Not sure if I am on the right track here, but are you using a different
name for each of the checkboxes? and how are they generated, from a
database or hard coded. Can we see the relevant part of your code.

Cheers

Tony

I'm not sure I follow you, but checkboxes aren't posted unless they're
checked.

And you can't change that.

Hi there: I've read an excellent "how to"-article by Microsoft (no. 306227) - partly cited cited at the end of this email). I have implemented the code related to the part "How to Add a CheckBox Programmatically" in my code. I have changed it to use a OLDDB.DBReader to populate the datagrid and for the databinding. It works perfectly - also when using the edit-mode in the datagrid.

I'm extremely frustrated with ASP.NET...again! To me this should be as simple as setting oCheckBox.Checked = True.. yet for some reason it isn't. I have a user control (ascx) that that has a checkbox and I can't get it to default to checked. I tried radiobuttons and experienced the same result.. can't start them as checked. The really frustrating thing is that I set the attributes of other input controls in the Init() with no problem. ...
